Anna Hersche Must Die! by Jez Curtis

The Book by Susan Freke

Synopsis – Anna Hersche Must Die

Following the bizarre death of rock star Jim Wayward, glamorous tabloid giornalista and compulsive shoplifter, Anna Hersche, revisits the village of her childhood. Is this the tragic story of an aging rocker’s terminal spiral into despair and isolation? Or is this a horrific parable on the dangers of unchecked ambition? Either way Anna’s not overly fussed, as long as her story sells!
